Hi I'm Robert

I'm an opera singer, music teacher, assistant to an oral surgeon, a delivery driver, and a medical school applicant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I sing professionally and have for the past 8 years. Operas, Church services of various denominations, Christmas caroling, weddings, funerals and business parties. I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for the past 5 years and get real satisfaction out of seeing my students progress. I have been working as a delivery driver for the past 6 years throughout college and after in order to fill my day. I drive a 32ft flatbed truck full of plumbing and HVAC supplies. I am planning on applying to medical school and wanted to get some experience working with a surgeon. I was able to find a position working for an oral surgeon. I help with the procedures as well as setting up and cleaning up after them. I make plaster models, take x-rays and sterilize the equipment. I am active in the boy scouts. I love to work with the youth and help them to become better people through the scouting program. I am a merit badge councilor for several merit badges and work specifically with the varsity scouts. I love to play football, I love to watch it too. No mater what the sport, I would rather play than watch it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the lords spirit tell me this is what I should be doing with my life. My parents were members of the church when I was born, but I was never compelled to be a member. I went because I enjoyed it. I made the decision to be baptized and I had to ask god myself if this was the right church to be a member of. I am a Mormon because I know of myself that this church is the lords church.

How I live my faith

I serve in my ward as an assistant to the 14 and 15 year old boys. That means I help with the Boyscouts and get to go camping and on hikes. Since I sing professionally and I would be nowhere without the lord, I volunteer my voice each Sunday with our ward choir. We get to prepare and sing songs for the entire congregation on select Sundays. I am still a member of the Elders quorum which means I still have certain responsibilities which involve Hometeaching. I get to go and visit a few families in the ward each month to see how they are doing temporally as well as spiritually and offer any assistance I can. I also get to leave them with a nice spiritual message to hopefully brighten their day and invite the lords spirit to abide in their home.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a passage of ancient scripture similar to the Bible in that many prophets wrote their prophecies down in their own books. The Book of Mormon is a compilation of the writings of prophets who lived in the North and South American continents from roughly 600 BC to roughly 400 AD. The compiled writings were later given to and divinely translated into English by the modern day prophet Joseph Smith. It is not meant to replace the Bible but is additional revelations from god which prove the truthfulness of the doctrines in the Bible. Show more Show less
